Almond Cookies

These cookies do not need any introduction as they are being baked to death lol! I can see it in almost every blog I visit.  So I shall just jump straight in and bake them. A few more days to bake up a storm before the CNY lol!  So let's get cracking... I followed this recipe:-

Adapted from Vivian Pang Kitchen who adapt with minor modification from Cass@揾到食
Almond Cookies (杏仁饼)
180g all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda

95g sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
120g ground almond

120ml corn oil

1 yolk (for glazing)
Some almond flakes for deco

1. Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda into a mixing bowl.

2. Add in sugar, salt and ground almond. Mix to combine.

3. Add in corn oil and mix till form into dough.

4. Roll out the dough between cling wrap into 1cm thickness. Cut with cookie cutter and transfer into lined pan.
*with the help of cling wrap make it easy to transfer. (I just rolled it into tiny balls)

5. Brush the cookies with yolk and decorate with a piece of almond flake if you like. Bake in preheated oven at 170C for about 15 to 20 minutes.
